I have a scene split into several view layers. They are rendered separately and then put together in the compositor.

I would like to re-render only some specific view layers, not all of them. How can I do this in 2.8x?

How about one at a time using "Render Single Layer" check box? Or simply deselect the "Use for Rendering" from the layers you don't want to re-render.

  • $\begingroup$ Render single layer works on a layer by layer basis. But I want to render several at once. Also, when I uncheck “Use for rendering” that layer becomes empty after rendering. As a result I cannot use it for further compositing $\endgroup$
